When Walt Disney World was being built, the Imagineers thought of not duplicating any of the original Disneyland dark rides in Fantasyland and instead create rides themed to an entirely different set of movies.
The original Disneyland dark rides were all classified by mood. In this case, the Snow White ride was scary, the Mr. Toad ride was crazy and the Peter Pan ride was beautiful. For WDW, the Imagineers tried to conjure rides that also echoed the moods of the original rides (scary, crazy, beautiful). In the case of Snow White, they thought of replacing it with a ride themed to Sleeping Beauty. Mr. Toad was intended to be replaced with a ride themed to Ichabod Crane (ironically, the second half of "The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad"). And Peter Pan was considered to be replaced by Mary Poppins. But then, Roy Disney intervened and insisted that the Imagineers remain true to Walt's original thinking at Disneyland and retain that park's original rides. Thus, they were duplicated at Florida. However, the Imagineers did revise the rides themselves so they were not complete duplicates of the original rides.
Does anyone else have any thoughts about the original thoughts for the dark rides?
